Durbach is a municipality in the district of Ortenau in Baden-Württemberg in Germany. It is situated on the verge of the northern Black Forest Mountains six kilometers north east of the town of Offenburg.
Main branches of commerce are agriculture (especially production of wine) and tourism. It is noted for its Riesling wine. The Riesling grape grown in the Ortenau district is known as Klingelberger for the name of a vineyard in Durbach.
Attractions are the picturesque town itself surrounded by vineyards spanning the slopes of the mountains, Schloss Staufenberg, a castle owned by the Markgraf von Baden with a magnificent view over the Rhine valley and Strassbourg to the Vosges mountains in Alsace. Noteworthy is the Skulpturenpark, an exhibition of contemporary sculptures in the park of the MediClin Staufenburg Klinik.
